Spy Shots: facelifted Toyota Reiz is ready for the China car market

The best spy shots so far of the facelifted Toyota Reiz, it will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in September and it will be launched on the China car market in Q4. The facelift includes a new grille, new headlights, new rear lights, and new bumpers.


The current Toyota Reiz is made in China by the FAW-Toyota joint venture. Price starts at 209.800 and starts at 326.800 yuan. Engines: 193hp 2.5 V6 and 227hp 3.0 V6, both mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox sending power to the rear wheels. Both engines will continue in the facelifted Reiz and price will be about the same.


New rear lights very sharp, compare:


The Reiz is a rare car to see in China because nobody knows it exist, FAW-Toyota having a huge marketing problem that also affects the Toyota Crown. Most Chinese car buyers simply go for the Camry which is made by Guangzhou-Toyota, Toyota’s other joint venture in China.

The few rear-wheel drive enthusiasts that manage to find the Reiz usually make it a bit more pretty: orangeXiali N3, lowrider, blue-pink, zebra, black & white, and with very big balls.
